Learners will be independent when dressing for FS. They will build upon their knowledge and experiences of FS to enable them to work collaboratively in groups and independently.
They will effectively manage conflict and be able to find resolutions independently. They will begin to have some understanding of how and why being outside can improve their mental health. Challenges will increase confidence and independent thinking.
Working together will be in a teacher selected group to improve communicating skills and working effectively with others. Learners should be making links between classroom learning and difficulties they have faced in Forest School sessions.
As environmentalists, Year 3 will use the poem ‘How Can You Buy the Sky’ as a stimulus for asking questions about who natire belongs to and who looks after it? Over the term we will attempt to put a value on the things in nature that we love and take responsibility to improve our own environment by deploying a ‘Clean up Crew’ each session.
As we look at who is responsible for caring for our natural world, we will collect words from our experiences which we will use as inspiration for poetry and short stories. At the end of the term we will share our words of wisdom together at a poetry recital.
